The city of Gatlinburg is gearing up for a community-oriented Thanksgiving with their Great Smoky Arts and Crafts Thanksgiving Show, which offers all kinds of trinkets for visitors and locals to appreciate. Many of the shops are open year ’round, but from November 26 – December 1, you can walk through the artisan booths for some great deals on baskets, quilts, brooms, dolls, leather, stained glass, photographs and many more art forms centering around the Thanksgiving season. If you’re interesting in staying for all five nights, you can book a hotel in the Gatlinburg – Pigeon Forge area.
There are several other artistic attractions in Gatlinburg you may enjoy during November such as the Cirque De Chine Acrobatics Show with its brilliant Winterfest production. With dazzling lights and music, the show has 60 gold and silver award-winning medalists from international acrobatic championships. To add a little color to the performance, some of the musicians will be playing the Shanxi Jiangzhou Thunder Drums, bringing power and authenticity to the atmosphere. The group is used to large productions, and they have performed in even larger arenas like Las Vegas.
Finally, if you’d like a little “mood-lightener” while you’re in the area, Sweet Fanny Adams Theatre is known for its hilarious lineup of shows including Not Quite a Fairy Tale, Yuletide Madness and Don’t Worry – It’s Nothing Serious. Each one of these is playing during the month of November and provides a talented cast that take you back over a century in a time when things were more simple and easier to understand. The shows are much like the humor of Monty Python and includes some slapstick comedy, so almost any audience can appreciate the humor.
